Definitely cannot make you infertile - or no one would risk taking it! Also, it usually reduces heavy piainful periods, so bleeding is usually lighter with less cramping. Cramps are usually caused by ovulation (releasing an egg) and the pill stops ovulation.

Speak to your doc for more advice or do a search on or for contraceptive pill. The pharmaceutical companies have some great sites with lots of info.

From my personal expierience, I would say no. I have been on the pill for almost 12 years and fell pregnant the second month after I stopped taking it.

I would suggest you wait and hear what the doc has to say as I am no expert.

Best regards
